Thank You for Your Help - Color Throwdown Challenge #557

Hello and welcome to a brand new Color Throwdown Challenge! This week Lori is our hostess and she’s got some fun colors for us based on her funky inspiration piece.

I used softer shades of the colors to sponge some Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper for my card front. Once that was done, I cut Thank You Die-namics, stamped the partial sentiment from Greetings & Salutations Stamp Set with Extreme Black hybrid ink and adhered the negative panel to a Sweet Tooth card stock card base.

I then cut Thank You Die-namics five more times from Sweet Tooth card stock and stacked them with spray adhesive, then reinserted it using the camouflage technique. To finish off I added some enamel dots in the challenge colors.

And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the Color Throwdown challenge. If you don't, just use the closest you have. So, c'mon over to the
Color Throwdown blog and play along with us this week. Please use the link service to post your card and please link directly to your card so we can find it easily. And please include a link in your post to the Color Throwdown. If you upload your card to a public forum, please use the keyword CTD5575 so we can see your beauty all in one place, and use #ctd557 and #colorthrowdown on social media. Hope to see you there! Be sure to check out what the other team members have come up with this week, including our amazing August Guest Designer, LucieG!

  1. I love your coloring on this card! It's more of a quiet thank you card, which is needed in some cases.
